Having grown up with this, I had no idea this wasn’t more widely practiced. I have always had a bad memory, so I blew a lot of punchlines and this was a bit stressful for me. Did the rest of you just get to go to a door and get free candy without having to perform?
(I’m kind of upset about being pushed from door to door and being one of the neighborhood’s performing monkeys. And not getting the chance to force kids to do the same now.)
